The Daily Dispatch: August 1, 1861., [Electronic resource], Partition of territory in the Old Union. (search)
he cession of this tract of slave territory, which contained 239,558 square miles, the proportion between free and slave territory was at once greatly changed; for the free territory which had before the cession been but one fifth of the whole country, was by this voluntary act of a slave State, increased to more than one-half. The relative extent of the two sections now stood thus: Free territory, 409,220 square miles; slave territory, 398,458 square miles.--Of the latter, the States of North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia conveyed 142,856 miles to the United States, on condition that slavery should not be interfered with; and upon this condition it was accepted, and since that time have been created out of it the States of Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi. Thus, it will be seen, that in the first partition of territory, it was freely and generously divided by the slave States with the free, the former giving up their preponderance of territory, and of their own accord puttin

A Naval engagement. A correspondent of the Raleigh Standard furnishes a graphic account of an engagement (heretofore noticed) at Oregon Inlet, on the North Carolina coast, between the steamer Beaufort, Lieutenant Duval, and a Federal steamer, name unknown. We copy a portion: On the 20th the weather was exceedingly rough and disagreeable — a stiff "sou' wester" prevailing all day — a more uncomfortable position than ours cannot well be imagined.--The wind moderated very considerably during the evening, and on Sunday, the 21st, the sun rose grandly and beautifully, seemingly refreshed by the long nap which he had taken on Friday and Saturday, the 19th and 20th.--There was a serenity and blandness in the air peculiar to Sundays the world over, and under the circumstances, doubly grateful to us. The officers of the "Beaufort" had been courteously invited on the day previous, by Col. Morris, to dine on shore, and early in the morning were busy with preparations to make a respec
